Description

Hello,

Renato Botelho noticed that when installing Prewikka, it will create three empty files in the Python sitelib directory ($PYTHON_SITELIBDIR).

One mor point, it's installing 3 files, +init+.py[co] on
usr/local/lib/python2.4/site-packages/, until i know it's not correct to
install files directly on site-packages dir. -- Renato Botelho

Regards,

Robin

This appear to be the expected behavior:

The .py files are required to make Python treat the directories as containing packages; this is done to prevent directories with a common name, such as "string", from unintentionally hiding valid modules that occur later on the module search path. In the simplest case, .py can just be an empty file, but it can also execute initialization code for the package or set the + variable, described later.

I've misunderstood the ticket description at first: fixed in r8180.
